Manipulation on the Internet: (Media) education between fake accounts, social bots and propaganda.

The “media competency framework Nordrhine-Westphalia” is an instrument to foster media competency in manifold formal and non-formal educational contexts. It serves as reference frame for the implementation of firm requirements in future curricula. In addition, the media competency framework NRW can trigger important processes of school- and lesson development as he allows for the implementation and improvement of internal media concepts (see www.medienpass.nrw.de for a German description).

On march, 2nd 2018, Dr. Lena Frischlich and Dr. Christian Grimme hosted two workshops on “manipulation in the Internet: (Media)education between fake accounts, social bots and propaganda” at the huge mediapassport conference in Essen, Germany. There they presented relevant insights from the work of DemoRESILdigital and the PropStop project for educational practitioners. The German handout for the workshop can be downloaded here.

Who’s lying on the net? From bots, trolls and other actors – panel discussion with Mike Preuß

In order to be able to move safely through the Internet, knowledge of the technical possibilities of manipulation is crucial. Above all, the targeted influencing of discourses and opinions has become a major topic. Terms such as “fake news”,”filter bubbles”,”social bots” and “big data” characterize the debate about digital communication.

Dr. Mike Preuß spoke at the panel discussion “Wer lügt im Netz? – Von Bots, Trollen und anderen Akteuren” in the Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften about the detection of propaganda attacks on social media.

A recording of the panel discussion can be found online on the web pages of the science portal of the Gerda Henkel Foundation (link in German).
